Hoffman: Local eaters down a few hot dogs for charity | Life | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle: "The Houston contest has a charity angle. Contestants pay $25 to enter, and the money goes to the Lions Club. First prize is $250, second place gets $50. The Hot Dog Shop uses Vienna Beef franks. That's good eatin', so even if you lose, you win. The action starts at 1 p.m., followed by a hula-hoop contest at 2. For kids younger than 12, there will be a watermelon speed-eating contest.
